Retro Planet's Planet Retro Blog posted the first in a series of posts featuring color slides from travels around the U.S. in the late 1940's to early 1950's. This photo is from the Greenbrier Hotel just outside Washington D.C. This resort, which is still in business, has not only provided luxurious accommodations for many years, since the late 1950's it also was the home of a secret U.S. government underground bunker built to house Congress in the aftermath of a nuclear war. It was decommissioned in the early 1990's after a media story exposing it. At the time this photo was taken, the bunker had yet to be built.
